Saturday’s bad weather put the baseball and softball playoffs on hold.

DeSoto Central’s softball team never got on the bus for Game 2 of its first-round series at Warren Central. The game was postponed until Monday at 4 p.m. If a Game 3 is necessary, it will be played immediately after Game 2.

DeSoto Central (21-3-2) leads the series at 1-0 after beating the Lady Vikes 12-2 on Friday afternoon at DeSoto Central.

“We called them Saturday morning and we didn’t want DeSoto Central to get on the road with all these tornado watches,” WC assistant coach Greg Head said.

St. Aloysius was able to finish its Class 1A playoff series with Sebastopol on Saturday. After wasting a late five-run lead in Game 1, the Lady Flashes dropped Game 2 by a score of 12-1. Sebastopol took advantage of seven errors by St. Al and scored nine runs in the first inning to complete the first-round sweep.

Southaven and Vicksburg High took care of their Class 6A softball series by playing both games Friday afternoon at Bazinsky Park. Southaven swept the doubleheader 11-0 and 15-0 to advance to the second round.
